Suffering

"Suffering finishes off any argument that we are in control of our circumstances."
Gary Spooner

"We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us; we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."
C.S. Lewis

I found these two quotes on my friend A. Lee's facebook profile a long time ago. Today, they just seemed to come to mind. Stephen and I have both friends and family who are suffering this morning (2 entirely separate circumstances). Our hearts are heavy for them.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Psalm 34:18
